Safety experts are blowing the horn on drowsy driving. Driving while tired may play a larger role in crashes than federal stats show.

It may account for nearly ten percent of all crashes.

The most common symptoms of being too tired, according to experts, are:

• Drifting in and out of your lane

• Difficulty keeping your eyes open

• Driving in a trance-like state, not remembering the past few miles driven

AAA reminds drivers to:

• Avoid heavy foods and medications that could cause drowsiness before driving

• On longer road trips, schedule breaks every 100 miles

• Travel with a passenger who can take turns driving whenever possible

• Don't be afraid to pull over (in a safe spot) for a quick power nap
